The period of the Babylonian captivity (c.587-539 BCE) was of seminal importance for the formation of the Hebrew Bible as well as for the religious development of Judaism. Jill Middlemas examines the theological thought of the community that remained behind in Judah after the Babylonian army destroyed the Jerusalem Temple and deported the king and most of the leadership.
